MegaMoMA Is Fail-safe And Risk-free

Ada Louise Huxtable reviews the new Museum of Modern Art -- "the right building for New York."

"Which brings us to the new MoMA 65 years after it began its march down West 53rd Street: a suavely sophisticated, exquisitely executed, elegantly understated building that doubles the museum's size. Mr. Taniguchi's style--where less is so much more than trendy minimalism, with every carefully reasoned detail honed as close to perfection as possible--is the right architecture for the Modern. It is also the right building for New York.

...The most dramatic and debated feature is the building's 110-foot-high atrium, a soaring central space that starts one floor above the entrance lobby and is ringed with exhibition galleries that give us more of the permanent collection than we have ever experienced, including a treasury of drawings, photographs and prints."
